IKEA & LEGO Introduce BYGGLEK – A Creative Solution That Intertwines Play And Storage

IKEA of Sweden AB and the LEGO Group revealed the long-awaited outcome of their collaboration. The two brands joined forces to create BYGGLEK – a playful storage solution. Consisting of a series of storage boxes with LEGO studs and a special LEGO brick set, the new BYGGLEK collection aims to encourage play and infuse more fun into storage around the home. The BYGGLEK collection will available in existing IKEA retail channels throughout Europe and North America beginning October 1, 2020.

With a strong belief that play makes both the home and the world a better place, IKEA of Sweden AB and the LEGO Group set out to remove barriers to play in daily life, while creating a practical yet playful experience that children and adults could enjoy together.

Play is an important and powerful way for children to learn and grow. However, children and adults sometimes have different views about play and creativity at home. Where adults often need to create structure and organize, children see a stimulating and creative environment in which they naturally want to play, pause and then replay.

Reorganizing children’s creative space during playtime not only disrupts their play but also their creative expression and growth. Therefore, the IKEA and LEGO brands wanted to create a storage solution that itself offers a fun and playful experience. The BYGGLEK boxes are equipped with LEGO studs on the top and the front that allow children to integrate the storage boxes as part of their LEGO builds. They can store their projects inside, and proudly display their creations on top.

The BYGGLEK collection consists of four different products: one set of three small boxes, two larger boxes, and one set of LEGO bricks to kick-start the playful experience. BYGGLEK can be used with any existing and future LEGO elements, as the studs used on the lid and front are part of the LEGO System in Play.

BYGGLEK will be available at IKEA U.S. stores and online at IKEA-USA.com beginning October 1, 2020.

Meet Gigawatt, The Back To The Future x Transformers Crossover Action Figure

Great Scott! Hasbro, Universal Brand Development and Amblin Entertainment today revealed the first-ever Transformers-Back to the Future Collaboration, starring the all new character Gigawatt. This new time-traveling Transformers Autobot commemorates 35 years since the groundbreaking adventure film, Back to the Future, took audiences back in time.

When fans of the iconic Back to the Future Time Machine look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated to a new “robot in disguise” named Gigawatt, a converting time machine robot. The figure stands at 5.5 inches in Robot mode and can convert to Time Machine mode in 17 steps, plus it includes a blaster and whip antennae accessories, and features movie-inspired details from the film, including Doc Brown-style goggles, a flux capacitor chest piece, and time circuits. In time machine mode, the gullwing doors open and wheels rotate from vertical to horizontal to produce a hovering effect as seen at the end of the film.

In addition to the collectible figure, from IDW comes Transformers / Back to the Future – the four-part, comic book series. The first issue cover is being revealed today, along with the story synopsis: Marty McFly has just returned to his home sweet home, Hill Valley 1985, and everything’s looking up… that is, until Marty and his friend Doc Brown’s time machine attracts the attention of the Decepticons! With one small mistake, Marty finds himself thrust into adventure to stop the Decepticon plot in the past, present, and future… all with the help of a new time machine: the Autobot, Gigawatt!

Transformers robots have always been more than meets the eye, but now, through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams and people who share this same special quality. It is a world of constant change where things are not what they seem.

The Gigawatt figure is available now for pre-order at walmart.com with only 1,985 pieces available that feature an exclusive, limited edition numbered package in honor of the 35th anniversary of the first film’s release – July 3, 1985. A second variant release of the figure will be available starting October 1, 2020 via HasbroPulse.com and select retailers around the world; part one of the comic book also will be available October 1, wherever comic books are sold.
